Spirent Communications Introduces the GSS6300M Range of Multi-Channel GPS and Multi-GNSS Simulators

Spirent Communications introduced the GSS6300M range of multi-channel GPS and multi-GNSS simulators for receiver integrators, application developers, aftercare and production testing environments. This entry-level test system readily enables laboratory evaluation of GPS performance across different locations and routes. In addition to being very easy-to-use, even for non-GPS experts, the GSS6300M range features competitive pricing for engineering teams looking to integrate positioning functionality to new classes of consumer electronic devices. The GSS6300M is a ‘one-box’ solution with everything required to start testing immediately and can be controlled from a tablet or smartphone, or via remote commands across multiple interfaces. It enables a variety of fundamental test and compliance to industry standard. Users can create custom trajectories using a Google Maps(R) interface to help evaluate receiver performance. The GSS6300M offers the same preeminent signal quality as other Spirent test systems, which are used by governments and space agencies around the world. High fidelity test equipment ensures the high user experiences, leading to improved customer satisfaction, reduced product returns and greater market success for integrators and application teams. The GSS6300M is designed to for the huge and growing range of applications and technologies that incorporate location features - from vehicles and mobile devices to wearable technology, security tracking and other new market segments. In addition to GPS, the GSS6300M fully supports GLONASS, BeiDou and Galileo, the Russian, Chinese and European navigation systems.

Spirent Introduces the First Open Framework Based Cloud Test Platform for SDN/NFV Testing

Spirent Communications unveiled Spirent Velocity, a virtual lab environment that helps validate Software Defined Networks (SDN)/Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies and deployments. Spirent Velocity helps accelerate time to market and reduce expenses associated with traditional virtual and physical test beds. For SDN/NFV technologies, predicting how networks, applications and security devices perform is a significant challenge since there are multiple elements involved, from the network layer through the compute and application layers. Spirent Velocity allows users to quickly set-up a predictable and repeatable virtualized test fabric to a desired deployment architecture, including choice of hypervisors, guest operating systems, reference server setup, NFV and other network elements such as SDN controllers and switches. Spirent Velocity's cloud-based design seamlessly incorporates the Spirent TestCenter Virtual and Spirent Avalanche Virtual test appliances, simplifying setting-up and running test cases using a database of methodologies for testing performance, availability, security and scale (PASS) of SDN/NFV. The cloud-based framework lets test engineers utilize physical and virtual test products of their choice on the platform, including other various test appliances or open source tools, to take advantage of existing investments and resources.

PCTEST Engineering Laboratory Selects Spirent Communications for Carrier Conformance Testing of IMS/VoLTE

Spirent Communications announced that PCTEST Engineering Laboratory Inc. has selected the Spirent 8100 Mobile Device Test System to expand its VoLTE/IMS testing capabilities to include IMS, RCS and VoLTE E911. PCTEST will use the Spirent 8100 to support major U.S. carriers and their ecosystems, providing testing services for IMS/VoLTE, including the ability to fallback to legacy services when needed. With the goal of surpassing Over-The-Top (OTT) voice services, VoLTE presents wireless carriers with the challenge of guaranteeing a quality of experience that meets or exceeds what the mobile subscriber is used. A major aspect of maintaining quality of experience is ensuring seamless and reliable voice services across multiple radio access technologies. With initial VoLTE deployments, operators will need to ensure VoLTE-capable devices are able to fallback to legacy systems such as CDMA when moving out of an LTE service area. The 8100 platform is equipped to address these critical mobility scenarios and the complex interoperability issues between LTE and legacy technologies such as CDMA and EVDO. Spirent's VoLTE/IMS portfolio covers a broad range of test capabilities for industry standards and operator specific areas, including IMS, RCS, Audio Quality and VoLTE E911.
